    Please tell us about the great democratic aspects and opportunities of communism. I can't wait.
    Who said anything about democracy...

    But Hu Jintao doesn't have the same power as a dictator persay.

    Yes he has got alot of power, but he's not as powerful a head of state as say Kim Jong Il or Stalin...

    China is communist in name only...

    You're really upset Obama had Hu Jintao at the white house...

    Yet every President since Nixon has had the Chinese head of state at the white house.

    I'm not shocked of the Chinese support around this board, that's for sure.

    At the White House, yes. You have to deal with world as it is, of course.

    But you don't honor them as Obama did. You don't essentially condone their ways. You use diplomacy, but you do not cowher. Obama cowhered.

    Of course, they own a significant portion of our financial future in their hands. It's what happens when you continuously spend money you don't have.

    No, he is not for any intents or purposes a dictator.

    Communism is actually very democratic as it advocates democracy in all things, but no government is actually communist in anything but future aspirations. Now, I would say that there are a number of democratic aspects to China's system. Your problem is you think democracy can only take one form and since China does not have that form you believe it cannot be democratic. If you want me to elaborate on the democratic aspects of China's political system then I would be happy to do so.

    I understand it well enough.

    Operate globally as a capitalist company. Operate internally as a communist country with very limited individual rights. Intentionally hold the value of your currency down so other countries can't compete, while your citizens have no legal recourse against their labor situation.

    The Chinese government stays wealthy beyond imagination, using their populace as virtual slaves, with no one to answer to.
